DDAP Data Dashboard
The Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs’ (DDAP) mission is to engage, coordinate and lead the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania’s effort to prevent and reduce drug, alcohol and gambling addiction and abuse; and to promote recovery, thereby reducing the human and economic impact of the disease.
To successfully achieve this mission, DDAP, in collaboration with the Pennsylvania State Data Center at Penn State Harrisburg, has gathered data from a variety of sources such as the Pennsylvania Youth Survey, the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board, Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, the U.S. Census Bureau, and the PA Uniform Crime Reporting System, around the topics of consumption, consequences, and risk and protective factors. This information is displayed in an easy to use format (e.g. charts, tables, maps, etc.) and is available to Single County Authorities (SCAs), local provider agencies, coalitions, researchers, and the general public.
These dashboards will serve as a tool for accessing multiple sources of data in one place and displaying that data in ways that promote more efficient data-driven decision making and strategic planning. Most importantly, this data aims to help prevent as many Pennsylvanians as possible from battling addition and to help those that are suffering from the disease of addiction.
